Fresh update on "obamacare" discussed on Freakonomics Radio
"The CEO turned political reformist Catherine Gale argue in Harvard Business School report that our political system has been turned into an industry with no real competition. Thie industry's primary beneficiaries are itself and its many ancillary participants, including the media, But the vast majority Americans who are somewhere in the middle are feeling very Very disaffected. The lack of vigorous competition, they argue, has allowed the Democrats and Republicans to carve out diametrically opposed political base is fairly narrow and extremely partisan. So years ago, we created partisan primaries in order to It actually take the selection of a candidate out of this quote unquote smoke filled back room and give the selection of the party candidate choice to citizens, so that was designed to give Mork control to citizens. It turns out, it has had a very Della teary ISS effect on competition and has increased the power of the parties. And the party's Gail importer argue, used those partisan bases to support the desires of the political industries, True customers and its wealthiest special interests. Industries like health care, realestate and financial services, also, labor unions and lobbyists. In this duopoly stick business model Polarization is a feature, not a bug. We have a chart in our report that just select Cem what we call landmark type legislation over the last 50 60 years. And if you go back, you know, even 20 or 30 years ago, the landmark legislation was consensus. For instance, the Social Security Act of 1935 had 90% Democratic support and 75% Republican The Civil Rights Act of 1964 had 60% Democratic support and again 75% Republican. Now for the last decade or two, that's been the opposite pattern. The only way landmark legislation gets passed is one party has enough votes to pass that by itself. The Affordable Care act, also known as Obamacare. Passed in 2010 with zero Republican votes in Congress. President Trump's 2018 tax reform bill zero Democratic votes, so your diagnosis suggests that this industry serves itself incredibly well. It suggests that it serves us the citizenry really poorly and also suggests that Mork competition would improve the industry as it does in just about every industry. But Just having you know, Maura Competition in parties doesn't seem to be the answer alone. I mean, there are plenty of multiparty political systems around the world that have similar cases of dysfunction and corruption and cronyism like ours. The UK comes to mind Israel comes to mind. So how direct a step or direct, you know, prescription would that be? Well, I think in our system in particular where we have on ly too And they have been able through the set of choices we've described actually set up the rules of competition. That reinforce their you know, partisan competition dividing voters and so forth. Maur competition, I think would be incredibly valuable, but it has to be a different kind of competition. You know, it can't be just another party that's going to split our electorate into three partisan groups. And so in our work, we focus on what would it take? To make the competition less about dividing the voters. And how could we make the competition? Maura around building up mohr choices for voters that were more about solutions. By the way, Let me be clear. We're not against parties per se. What we're against is the nature of the competition that our existing, you know, dominant parties have created. Let me ask you this when you suggest that these rules were carefully constructed, I guess if I were thinking about something other than politics The first thought that would come to mind then is well, collusion, right if I can be one member of a duopoly, I actually hate my rival much less than I hate the idea of anybody else. Who would interrupt that rivalry because we're splitting the spoils now. Do you have any evidence of collusion between the parties to create a system that essentially keeps the rest out? Well, you know, First of all, that is the right word. It is collusion. And you know, there's a probably a legal definition of collusion, which I don't know. You know, I'm not a lawyer, but the effect is exactly the same. The parties have agreed on A set of rules. That benefit the duopoly and preserve you knowthis nature of competition. You could really put rules into a number of buckets there. There's kind of a This kind of legislative machinery as we call it, which is how the Senate and the Congress will run and on. Then there's election rules having to do with Ah You know what is the primary process like and you know, what does it take to get on the ballot is an independent and the various campaign finance stuff that surrounds that surrounds elections. All right. So in the report, you discuss the many advantages the two parties have, but it strikes me. Donald Trump really got around a lot of those advantages. So you write that the party is quote control the inputs to modern campaigning governing But he didn't rely on that. Really. You wrote that the party's coopt channels for reaching voters, But he kind of co opted or maybe took advantage of his own channels, including free media and his own social media accounts. You write that the party is quote erect high and rising barriers to new competition. But in the case of Trump You know his own party tried as hard as they could to erect the highest barrier and couldn't keep him out and and so on those fronts, it would strike me that the party's failed failed to constrict a certain competitors. So I don't know how you personally feel about President Trump. According to those advantages and his end run around them. It would sound as though he is at least one example of the solution to the problems that you're describing. I think that is definitely a good question. First of all, the best choice that President Trump made was to run in a party. He had to pick one side of the duopoly because he knew he couldn't win as an independent..
Trump on ABC News town hall: We will protect coverage for preexisting conditions
"Going to Pennsylvania yesterday for a town hall last night on ABC with Bill Clinton's former communications director, George Stephanopoulos. How did it go? Well, here's an interesting moment. A woman asking a question of the president of the United States gets testy with the president for attempting to answer it. Listen to this. Questions on health care comes from the block. She's from Philadelphia and assistant professor who voted for Hillary Clinton. Last time, Mr President. I was born with a disease called sarcoidosis, and from the day I was born, I was considered uninsurable. That disease started in my skin moved to my eyes into my optic nerves. And when I went to graduate school into my brain when it hit my brain, I was automatically eligible for disability. For the rest of my life. I chose instead to get a bachelor's degree a master's degree a PhD and become a professor. It is great. Except I still have similar health care problems. It cost me with copays. I'm still paying almost $7000 a year in addition to the co pay and should pre existing conditions which Obama care brought into brought to fruition be removed. No with that. Please stop and let me finish my questions there. Wow should then be removed within a 36 to 72 hour period without Medication. I will be dead and I want to know what it is that you're going to do to assure that people like me who work hard we do. Everything we're supposed to do can stay insured. It's not my fault that I was born with this disease is not my fault that I'm a black woman and then the medical community. I'm minimized and not taken seriously. I want to know what you are going to do about that. How about a cocked fist? Basically, I mean, it listened to her. Asked that question he tries to even gently answer it, she said. You stop. Let me finish my questions because it's because she's black and he's white. So he's racist. And so she's confronting the man was. I heard that and I thought that that was so rude and I got tired of and she was just one of several who are like because they're black. It's different for them, you know, and I thought President Trump kept his cool the whole time, and she said, I pay $7000 a year in premiums. I'm like I want your insurance plan because that's far less than mine. You know, she's paying less than I'm paying. And you know she's going to take much more out of the system. Then I dio and I'm pretty sure she doesn't understand how a socialist system works like that. Her brain is filled with all sorts of new media manipulation. I mean, it's just like it's kind of interesting to hear her talk. It's like it's like she's regurgitating a CNN segment. We'll glide. The questions were written down, and I wonder when these people asked these questions if they're written for them or if they've been coached in anyway, because there were several of familiar themes that ran through the questions. It wouldn't be the first time that political activists were either involved or made their way into event like this. The Stephanopoulos did say at the beginning that these were their own questions. These questions were written by these individuals and by the way, we totally appropriate for ABC to check on what the actual question is, from a question or prior to the production of this event, because you create a natural flow of topics that way so you can go to somebody who actually has a question that's relevant, something that was just asked. But you know, it's good to be skeptical, definitely, especially in an environment where Bill Clinton's former communications director is the moderator. That does seem like a good idea. Trump was calm in his answer Here listen to the way he talked about pre existing Titian's So first of all, I hope you are taken seriously. I hope you are and we are not going to hurt anything having to do with pre existing conditions were not going to hurt preexisting conditions, and in fact, just the opposite. If you look at what they want to do, where they have socialized medicine, they will get rid of pre existing conditions. If they go into Medicare for all, which is socialized medicine, and you can forget about your doctors and your plans, just like you could forget under President Obama. Said. You can have your doctor. You can have your plan and that turned out to be alive and instead of 28 different times, at least we have 28 different times. You can have your doctor. You can have your plan. Well, it's not true, but what we're doing is we're going to be doing a health care plan pre existing protecting people with preexisting conditions as an example yourself. It sounds like that's exactly perfect. That's exactly what we're talking about. Yeah, Okay, so and he and he hit that again, like look, any plan I come up with any plan we're gonna work on will replace Obamacare, especially the issues of pre existing conditions. I want to protect him. He's been
Fresh update on "obamacare" discussed on Ask the Experts
"Stamp, and apparently there's places out there where they have to finish the hair cut in a certain time, whenever you four speed on somebody the anxiety Sets in. And you know that's where I worry where things could go wrong. And you know, with Cove it and our covert practices and things like that. I mean, I've seen even post Cove it I've seen people in restaurants. Do such have a half way cleaning or have way sterilizing them like that's not sterilizing. You barely even know, But you see the rush. You see the nowhere. The priorities are You know, And and it's all management, you know? And so you know, here's somebody is getting burned and scalded. And I go. I don't know this back in 2018. So this doesn't have to do with cove in, you know, but but or obamacare and I notice that you see, I did not blame Obamacare. Did you see that? Okay, good. Good. But you know here is not making sure Lydia's on secure not making sure that the temperature of your product is not going to cause third degree burns. Should be pyramid should be. I mean, understood that that that it should be a given. And so I worry when you hear something like this, how much more of this is going, Tio? Accelerate the automation. I mean, you are on Leah's good is your staff. And your staff is on Leah's good as your management. So if you have poor managers if you have poor staff, if you have people that are, you know, shall we say you're rushing or feel stressed or lazy or not following the rules? Your face with lawsuit. You're you're hurting people. And so I, Unfortunately when you hear these things, and I know, you know, there seems to be rare cases with burns. But I do here on a very, very common level. Mistakes being made or On purpose things being done life, somebody spitting in the food or somebody you know? Ah, deterring a customer or somebody saying something that ends up being politically incorrect or racist. At some point, employers are going to say I can't trust humans. And they'll say, I don't have to worry about a computer or a robot or automation doing something for, you know, or saying something that's going to be perceived. As racist or unsafe or whatever. You know somebody needs to use the bathroom. The robot will say. Here you go. Here's the key. And you know, and if it is an issue, they could blame the robot. Same thing with, you know, the robot could make sure that the temperature is at a certain degree. So I mean, you know, people, we gotta be more careful because we're going to squeeze ourselves out of our own.
Supreme Court to hear arguments in Obamacare case a week after election
"The Supreme Court will take up aural arguments on Obama care on November 10th one week after the election, the ruling could affect the future of the Affordable care act. The issue involves a lawsuit by 18 Republican led states. The challenges whether Obama care's individual mandate is constitutional. Three years ago, Congress wiped out the financial penalty for not purchasing health insurance. The Republicans, along with the Trump administration, argues that makes the mandate unconstitutional. They also argue the mandate can't be separated from the rest of the law, so the whole thing should be struck down.
Charlie Kirk: Coronavirus stimulus
"And you have Schumer Pelosi. In Biden one hundred twenty five years, Charlie Kirk of failure, unmitigated failure, swap failure and I. Think of my kids. You met my son. He's twenty one years old. My daughter's eighteen and I would think about your America their America and when I say you know, live free or die, American, the world on the brink I'm not joking. And very specifically will be probably the biggest choice election by far in my lifetime, and maybe since eighteen sixty, and there's a lot at stake We can go through the issues if you want, but it's. It's there's there's not one issue we agree on that. I can think of for the most part yet, and you wrote this, and it just really sent chills down my spine. You wrote this book to sound an alarm as a warning. Warning to my fellow patriots about the left's undying commitment turn America into a land, our parents, founders and framers wouldn't recognize it. It's perfectly put, and that's the direction that they're headed on page twenty seven. You have a great part about how Ben Franklin says we ever republic. If you can keep it, can you talk more about how this truly is? A referendum election in some sense and the left is trying to do to our country. Well the the story about Franklin's interesting, because it's, it's the constitutional convention and somebody says he comes out one days, says, is it a monarchy republic republic? If you can keep it Reagan, I quote him off. When I give speeches, said Freedom Charlie and you know this is but one generation away from extinction. And you know when if you want understand if socialism is adopted if their stated goal is adopted America as we know, it then becomes unrecognizable look, I can understand psychologically. There's a component of maybe people that that have been indoctrinated in schools, and you're great at this because you're going in to hostile environments every day, and you're saying you know what there's another way of thinking here, so maybe the idea that people think Charlie that some things are oh, everything's going to be free and they're gonNA forgive my loans at I'll have a guaranteed government job guaranteed government food. How did obamacare workout now? We're GONNA have Medicare for all or or double down on the stupidity of Obamacare and guaranteed retirement. Guaranteed vacation sounds great. But simple math shows you that you'll never get there. And that's why in the Fourth Chapter of the book did this whole history of socialism which is a history of failure? The point is look at the issues. If if we're talking about law and order. They've cited in Portland in Seattle and new. York and Chicago with the radicals. Joe Biden his yet that I know of said one good thing about the ninety nine percent of cops protect and serve and put their lives on the line for us every day. You're right. Okay, so law and order taxes. He's pledging to raise your taxes through the roof. That will destroy the economy Then they're gonNA just add all the bureaucracy. The Donald Trump spent almost four years. Eliminating that'll be gone. That means nobody's GONNA WANNA DO Business. That's why the Biden Obama economy was so bad. Then you look at where now energy independent for the first time in seventy five years with a number, one producer of energy in the world will lose that for sure We'll shut down coal fracking. Oil Gas exploration production those tens of millions of jobs high paying jobs career jobs for people. Then it's about amnesty. Or the United Sanctuary states of America versus Border Security and law and order of never mind foreign policy. We haven't even touched that part yet, so. There's a lot at stake. If those plans stated plans are implemented. America will go down the past you know. The Trash bin of history as Reagan, said Freedom One generation away from extinction we will. It I shudder to think what will happen the three you and your children by kids, and and maybe one day grandkids. ARE READY FOR THAT And I love the framing, because as the founder said either we're GonNa live free and defendant right now, or we're gonNA. Have a country that you know. We don't WanNa live it, and that's really the framing. That is so important right now, and you talk about and I'm really pleased about this. Shawn because I think we have forgotten about the Russia hoax too quickly in. In the conservative movement, you have been the leader on this every night. You were covering it. You didn't let us forget you help. Muller Accountable, you had investigative journalism and it just seemed that an Oxana names, but other conservatives just kind of drifted away from like Oh. That's what happened happened. You have two chapters on this in the book. Can you talk about that? Yeah I mean I call it Charlie, the the biggest corruption abuse of power scandal in history and the Ukraine was oh. Okay, we failed with Muller after three years. We won't. We won't even bother with a special prosecutor not to I'm going backwards here but to get to Ukraine. You? Know they're talking about quid pro quos, but you have to ignore their presidential candidate on video saying you're not getting a billion US tax payer dollars unless you're fire. That prosecutor is named Shokhin. WHO's investigating my son Hunter who went on a and said? Do you have any experience in oil? No Gas, no energy, nope, any experience in Ukraine. Nope, why are you being paid millions? No, because you dad, so there was a quid pro quo and millions of dollars for the Biden I call crime family. That's exactly right, so. Listen and China's even worse. You get to this whole thing what we now know and I believe what's coming. It's like, and this is where the media's corrupt because. They're just the propaganda wing of all things democratic. Socialist. We now know and have all the evidence that we'd ever need is that they protected their favorite candidate. Hillary Clinton. For things you and I and everybody you know that follows you and you have a massive audience would. Literally never get away with. If you had subpoenaed emails Charlie Kirk and you decided to delete them, and you decided to acid. Wash your hard drive with something. I had never heard about bleeped bleach bit and bust up your devices with hammers. You'd go to jail. If you violated the espionage act, you'd go to jail. They protected her. Then the narrative began we now know began in August. We know crossfire hurricane representatives actually went to brief. President Trump General Flynn. Flynn on national security, but they were there to try and get information on trump and Russia, the most amazing part of this, because the Democrats and the media live for all these years is that they knew and they said and they wrote, and they even testified. There was never any evidence, but there was a dirty Russian dossier. And now we know even the New York Times acknowledged full full of Russian disinformation and that was used. And they were warned not to use it, but high ranking people abusing their power, wanting to take out candidate, trump, transition, team, trump, and then deep into the Presidency Donald Trump. They use the dirty Russian misinformation dossier to ruin Carter pages life and roomed his civil liberties and constitutional rights, but more importantly to spy on candidate trump, and then they had their insurance policy. The fact that the mob in the media ignores it is beyond comprehension. I have so I have two chapters. One is on the Russia hoax, and the other is on this whole impeachment witch hunt. And I want everybody in your audience to understand one thing here if I can get one point across. Yeah, they hate Donald Trump, but they hate us more. They think we are as Peter. Struck, said the smell by the way I probably shop at Walmart say money. Why not you have a woman I love Walmart I love COSCO's. I Love I love it all. And I've shopped there my whole life I mean people always stopped me when I'm in a grocery? So, what are you doing here? Shopping? Wa I like to eat a cracks me up. So but think about that. smelly Walmart Shoppers while irredeemable deplorables, wow! Bitter Americans as Obama said that WANNA cling to their God. I'm guilty their Second Amendment Rights Guilty Bibles and religion I'm guilty of that, too. But. It's contempt for your audience. It's contemporary my audience. It's because they knew better. And they will ling. This was an attempted coup. Now do I think there's going to be arrests and prosecutions I? Do spend much slower than any of us would have liked, but the evidence is overwhelming. It's incontrovertible sad actually that this could happen. That was going to be my follow up. Question Sean because when I travel and we get thousands of e mails a on this topic. When are people going to go to jail? And can you give me insight on this? Can you give us any clues any crumbs that we're starting to see from Durham? It's I call them. It's funny. You say crumbs because call them the the Attorney General Bar breadcrumbs. It's like Hansel and Gretel. Remember. We're we're trying to follow and see the trail exactly yeah. He did say that the president was spied on. It did happen illegally. The. Think about this. If you go before Judge Judy I wouldn't WANNA lot because Judge Judy I. I've met her once she'll eviscerate. You I watched her show. You. Don't go before a court. The information that you have not verified. It actually said at the top of a FISO Warren Charlie. It says verified. Okay. We now know the dossier was unverifiable. The sub source we now know, said this this bar talk. We were making this up. This was never meant for anything and again Hillary paid for it funneled money separate issue. And so, what is going to happen I don't have a crystal ball but I. do know all of the facts that are in the public. Are Enough to indict many of the names that your audience is most familiar with. I would argue. Komi McCabe struck page. I'd like to know a clapper. Brennan's role in all of this ends up being and and others. The more fascinating deep question is. Will they get to that January fifth twenty seventeen meeting inside the Oval Office? This is when member Biden said George Stephanopoulos Oh I. Don't know. Anything about this, you know this whole impeachment Russia thing. He was the one same. Bring up the Logan Act fifteen days later Susan Rice in that meeting did the Cya memo the day that Donald Trump was inaugurated. Obama in that meeting shot Sally Age by saying a He. He knew everything about the Kislyak Michael Flynn call. If we look. To sum it up. I think we're GONNA get there because the evidence. Is that overwhelming? If we don't. I fear for the country? Because of you. GonNa Raid Manafort's home predawn raid and you're going to raid Roger Stone's home. For lying to Congress by the all many of the names I mentioned were referred for the same crime and you're gonNA. Pull it twenty nine guys in tactical gear, frogmen and tip off CNN cameras and. Have a biased jury for person. We won't have equal justice and equal application of our laws, and worse than that Charlie is. We lose our constitution. Yes, all our laws are are predicated on next great document and some `perfect, but it creates the path to perfection at a more perfect union so. Long answers. I'M GONNA talk. Show I love it. No, this is what our audience needs to hear, and and thank you for that and look I I completely agree because if we do not have people and I, say this as carefully as I can in handcuffs for what they did Donald Trump then I I will lose faith in the American justice system I. Don't want that and I don't want revenge I don't retribution I want people to be held accountable and I would want the same if someone did this to Barack Obama because it should never happen to a leader ever. Yes. and. They've gone after every single trump friend confidant, and yet if you oppose Donald Trump you get different treatment, talk a lot about the constitution in your book and the founding of our country, Sean going to be honest, I've been very let down by some of these supreme. Court decisions lately Can you comment on that and the importance to get more people like Kavanagh? Who's actually ruled brilliantly? Unlike John Roberts. I! I'm a little. I don't know what's happening. Roberts I have my theory I guess I have my sources people that. have their own ideas based on some knowledge? For whatever reason and I think this goes back to the obamacare decision. He has allowed. How the court appears to influence his decision making. I also sense with no evidence whatsoever. You're not a big fan of president trump, but that should not come into his thinking. Now. If getting rid of bureaucracy and lowering taxes and energy, independence, and securing our borders, and law and order are all part of this election. Let me tell you another big part of it. And it's you know we're taping this ninety. Whatever days away from the Election Day, I what about and we got asked. What about the Supreme Court? Yes, I go through a whole list I. Forget what paid maybe sixty seven I forget. A. In the book. Of. All the things Democrats would do if they're getting power one, is they? WanNa, stack the courts. Get rid of the Electoral College. And I. What, they're saying they. WanNa do is scary. They used to hide it Charlie. When I every single Liberal Democrat running for office, they would run to the left in the primary. They race back to the center, but you knew they wanted the left. There now openly embracing the most radical elements in the country and you know. Unfortunately we're watching it all. Play out nightly on TV and and that sad what I see happening when I think we have to remind a trump supporters that these are not trump appointed justices, a gorsuch I think ruled incorrectly on one ruling. That's it besides that gorsuch and cavenaugh have been tremendous and terrific verses Roberts. I just think we have to give the audience a sense. Sense of continued conviction that the trump appointed justices will continue to rule correctly and Clarence. Thomas and you know the the Thomas Family. They get no credit at all. I mean what he has done. And can you comment on that? 'cause I, E, you've actually been you open my eyes to that like eight years ago and I never learned about Clarence Thomas as a high schooler until you I mentioned it just as a quick aside on his incredible career. I like to do on TV and antidote on radio, too. Sometimes I call it the Hannity history, lesson 'cause I lived through all of this. I know this is going to see. You're not even thirty three, but my radio journey started in nineteen eighty-seven crazy right. Now on my twenty fifth year of Fox, I didn't think I last two. So I feel very blessed. As a side note if you haven't read my grandfather's son. Which is about Clarence Thomas is life. It's amazing. But. You know it's interesting because him and Scalia. To my opinion, my to most favorite justices in my lifetime. Scalia this incredible wit and genius and understanding and. They got a little acerbic side to when when he was questioning Clarence Thomas always set by quietly. What they called a high tech lynching at the time, the more modern. Let it. You gotTA. Remember Yeah. And you know. It was then Senator Ted Kennedy you know Robert Bork's America the borking of America. That was Clarence Thomas. Now we see it more recently cavenaugh. It exposes. The, who is Joe Biden? Who is his team? Because Clarence Thomas and Justice Scalia or the people we need on that court. We call them constitutionalists or originalists, the original intent, not people that would sight foreign law as liberal justices have done or not people that feel that they can rule by judicial Fiat and dictate or legislate from the bench. Democrats always wanted the court to do that which they could never. Do legislatively or win at the ballot box and that's why they want. We call them. Activists Justices Clarence Thomas. has shown a fidelity to the Constitution at the Antony Scalia. That is beyond enviable And the differences styles always interesting, too because Justice Thomas will always be quiet. That's very few questions. Anthony Scalia was in there in a wrestling with people. I don't know about John Roberts. I can't get into it, but I do believe the next president United States is a very good chance. You have a lot of older justices may want to retire. And I think that the next this election in just three short months. That's on the ballot and that's that's generational now. And Sean I think we have to pressure the Biden campaign to do what trump did and release a list of justices I mean president trump was so transparent and Joe Biden hasn't done it yet. Intentionally, of course, because he'll probably put repeated to lieber something on the United States Supreme Court I mean as horrifying as that might be so in two two quick closing question Sean and thank you for being so generous with your time anchorage, everyone you know. Know go by live, free or die. the first is this. Can you just talk about? We are heading into the election. A lot of trump supporters. They're failed. They're falling victim. They suppression pulse I wish that wasn't the case, but it seems like the memory of two thousand sixteen as faded where people forget. We were down by double digits. Can you just give a little vote of confidence to some of our listeners out there? That think we're just losing. I WANNA. Give the vote of confidence, but I want people to feel this way. I want people to think I'll use a football analogy that our mutual friend Linda that you know. Who's your biggest fan? My radio producer? He's amazing. Amazing, but she doesn't even know how many points you get a touchdown, so I'm giving these football analogies. I, want this election. I want people to feel the way I feel which is. We're on our own twenty. Two minutes to go. We have no time outs We're down by six. We got a cross. The plane marched down the field, cross the plane and hit the extra point to win. So if people feel a sense of genuine urgency and worry and concern, I'm cool with that because fear often as a great motivator, not irrational field fear, but if people do not vote, you will get the government that they're telling you. They're going to give you believe. That that is their agenda. To be a Republican and win. You GotTa always use this analogy got to run the table I gotTA. Get Florida Georgia North Carolina can't win without Ohio. No Republican's ever become president without it right? You got hold Iowa then you got pick off Pennsylvania Wisconsin hopefully Michigan maybe MINNEA- Minnesota will be play. Maybe the city of Arizona will be in play. By Joe Biden reference for those of you. That didn't get. We got a hold Arizona Gopher Nevada New Mexico. New Hampshire and Maine's second congressional district. If every single mom, this is a battle cry. You started out this interview with this. I wrote this book not because I like writing books. My last book I donated every Penny I made to charity I don't care. It's not that. This is a tipping point. Charlie this is I, don't. See if these policies are implemented how America recovers. Irreparable harm the to the rule of law to our courts to our economy, they want to wipe out the lifeblood of of the world's economy. This this promise of socialism and I go into such detail about how it's always failed. Here's a quick socialism of example. Member obamacare. Keep your doctor keep your plan. Save on average twenty five hundred dollars a year per family right? Okay. Millions lost their doctors. Millions lost their plans. We're all paying about two hundred percent more and add to that. Forty percent of Americans almost forty percent have only one obamacare Biden Carriage James Choice now. How did they do with that promise? Medicare is going broke. How did they do it? That promised social security. Charlie hate the break this here. He paying into it. You probably won't get it I. Barely Skate through, and they might give me ten cents until they means tested and then take it back, How does it? How did Liberal government work in New York City with all the anarchy cutting a billion dollars, so please? How's IT WORKING IN CHICAGO? All. These liberal cities have where the violence we've been talking about takes place. They all have one thing in common. They've been run by Liberal Democrats for decades right. Most of these states have been run into the ground by Liberal Democrats for decades. If you WANNA know what America will look like if Biden Bolshevik Bernie. Pelosi Schumer and Bozo. That team gets place look at new. York state and city look at Chicago the City Illinois. The State Look at California. Look at Oregon. Look at Portland, the city. Look at Seattle. Look at the state of Washington. Yes. And I. Love this country too much. You know it's an all hands on deck moment and Every everyone of you've got this connection with younger people in this country. You have this incredible. A credible platform you built, and it's become powerful and meaningful and transformative to the country, and you're going out there, and you're fighting on these college campuses and you. You know it's not easy to be in the middle of a I call it a shift. Show all the time, but let's well put, but you do it. And it's freedom works. Every time you give up freedom for security, you lose your freedom because the security that they're offering. These promises that can never ever be fulfilled. In America. The land. I'll close with this unless you want to go further I can keep going the. Barry Farber who was a mentor of mine. Just recently passed away like ninety ninety one. And he always said there's never been a country in the history of mankind that has accumulated more power and abused at less than the United States well I add. A country in the history of mankind that has accumulated more power abused at less, but used it to advanced human condition. The reason America is great and exceptional. If I can say that today, it's not perfect, but it's great. An exceptional is because of its people, and because of the fundamentals of liberty and freedom. So that? Natural rights versus government or rights, natural rights come from God doubt by our Creator. Life Liberty pursuit of happiness while you can't pursue happiness these days in Chicago New York Moreland Seattle. So there's a lot on the line. I love your audience. I'm so thankful for all you're doing, and you've got a great team that you building review and you're out there fighting the fight and I just urge you guys. Just fight like your country depends on it. Because America's, we know it. It's all hanging in the balance. Yet was Sean. You've been so generous the last quick thing I defend the president all the time personally as a person. Can you comment on that because I've had the opportunity to meet him? not as much as you obviously and get to know him, but a lot of people here misrepresentations in lies about who he is as a human being. Let's close on this note. Can you just mention one or two things that that people can take away from that? You know first of all. It's interesting. Nobody seems to understand Donald trump yet. They don't want to understand. I mean Donald Trump. The Dog Bites the beasts, things you feeling sad or get cancer. You Complain Trump. I mean that's how saying the leftist. But here's a guy that is so unique he this guy is like a soon nami force of energy like I've never met my life. The most distinct and unique quality he's had is as president. You mentioned the Supreme Court. He put those people that he said he put. He cut the bureaucracy as he said he'd caught, and he cut the taxes as he said he'd cut. He did the North Dakota. A keystone pipelines Anwar Likey said he would. He's building the wall or almost four hundred miles. A wall by the by election will be over four hundred miles. He found a way it was. It was an uphill climb He said he wanted to pull us out of foreign conflicts, but not back away from evil defeated. The Caliphate took out. Baghdadi and Associates took out Sola Mani took out the Al. Qaeda leader in Yemen. So? What makes him special and unique in terms of presidency is that he is who you see is who you get. The guy that's fights on twitter is the guy that's fighting for a better trade. Deal the guy that fights. Against Liberal Democrats and the media mob is the same guy is fighting to keep his promises that to me makes him the most unique transformative political figure in our lifetime. And Right now. The. We tip the scales. You have a choice. It's never been a bigger choice. He will keep his promises. Coronas been a little bit of a curve ball to the world, but even that ten days after the first case, the only guy that I know of thought about a travel ban will be donald trump. They were teaching at the time and Joe Binder Biden was call them Sinophobic, so he's a man of his word. He's a man that will fight to his last dying breath for this country and the promises he made, and that makes them in my view very transformative. Men will.

Supreme Court upholds exemptions to Obamacare contraceptive mandate
"Provision of Obama care in a seven to vote, the justices ruled the Trump Administration is allowed to give employers exemptions from covering women's birth control. If they have religious or moral objections. That coverage had been mandated under the affordable care act Well, joining us to talk about it's Robert Barnes, Supreme Court reporter for The Washington Post. Always good to talk to you. Thanks so much for being here. Thank you elaborate here on what the justices have ruled. Well, this is about whether employers have to provide no cost contraceptive care to their female employees, and this has been a long running legal battle. Nine years in the making. With at one point the Obama administration on one side saying yes, they do and making very limited exceptions for churches and other religious organizations. The court has been involved in this without making very many decisions. And now when the Trump administration came in, it reversed that and broaden the exemptions to include more religious organizations and those who have moral Objections to providing this kind of contraceptive care, and our listeners may remember the high profile hobby lobby case from a few years back. So how did this different? This goes beyond that because the administration went beyond that, saying that Maura organizations can apply for this exemption, and it adds this idea of moral Objection rather than just religious and but the majority of the court said, you know, the agency is charged under Obamacare, with both saying what employers have to provide and With giving these exemptions and so it is up to the administration to make those decisions. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg wrote the descent here. What did she have to say?
Supreme Court upholds exemptions to Obamacare contraceptive mandate
"And now as promised, we're going to talk about these two Supreme court decisions that were rendered Earlier this morning and a 7 to 2 vote. The Supreme Court ruled this morning in favor of two California churches, arguing they should not have to face employment discrimination lawsuits brought by former teachers. The ruling makes it so that religious schools are exempt from most employment discrimination claims, expanding religious freedom, and the Supreme Court today also cleared the way for the Trump administration to expand exemptions for employers who have religious or moral objections to Complying with Obama's care, Obamacare's contraceptive mandate and we're going to talk with David Levin, Professor. You see Hastings College of the law about these rulings and other Supreme Court decision is expected to come. Welcome David Levin. Always good to have you with us. Good morning. Good morning to you and well, we got a couple of examples here. The court, citing with religious groups and religious liberty, don't wait. We sure do. I think this is gonna end up being a trilogy with one from a couple weeks ago involving those private schools in Montana, where the Supreme Court said that Montana and many other states could not limit public school funds. That school's off school funds to go to religious schools and in these two as you, said, the one involving two schools down in Southern California, where 11 plaintiff alleged that she was the victim of a discrimination. The other plaintiff alleges that she was Victim of disability discrimination because she had told the school that she had breast cancer in both cases is to teachers were not given new contracts well, the Supreme Court said that under was called the Ministerial Exception. The's teachers who are primarily secular teachers. They teach things like English math spelling to fifth and sixth graders, but they also letter daily prayer. They also at least from a workbook did some religious instruction that that was enough for them to come within the ministerial exception. And basically, it's for this for the institution. In this case, the Catholic schools to say who it is, who is responsible for inculcating students with faith, etcetera, and that the government shouldn't second guess that opinion by seven to to the Supreme Court agreed with that idea, so it blows a huge hole. Ian Discrimination Law your number earlier in the term. That was the case about protection of lesbian and gays in transgender under title seven well in the religious school contacts that's gone this morning. And then if you want to go into the second, we're going to the 2nd 1 I want to. I want to break them down with you. But okay, we'll come back. Alright. The other one's called litter Sisters of the poor, and this has to do with the contraception mandate in the affordable care act and this causes. The statute requires contraception to be included among the health. The kind of Procedures that are available under the affordable health care under Obamacare, and that's caused some consternation. We've had other cases the famous hobby lobby case, saying that well if a privately held corporation and religious scruples they didn't have to offer contraception and then the Supreme Court in the year that Justice Scalia died. I asked the parties, the Obama administration and the parties, including the Little Sisters of the Poor, the lead plaintiff here to try and come up with some accommodation because the little sisters even objected to the idea that they would have to tell their health insurers that they didn't want to give the contraception. Coverage. And so instead, the by this point in the Trump administration was involved because of the change of administration in the Trump administration, came up with a very broad exemption was for religious and moral reasons that you could just as an employer. You could just say we don't want to provide contraceptive. Coverage. And while there's some nuance to it, basically as you stand by 70 to Justice Thomas for the majority said that was okay that we could have this big big exception. In the affordable care act both for religion and for moral
Supreme Court upholds exemptions to Obamacare contraceptive mandate
"The hour. The Supreme Court has ruled on one of the significant outstanding cases this on the case of religious exemptions. Under the Affordable Care act, the Supreme Court has ruled the mandate that all entities participating under the Affordable Care Act. Must provide contraceptive care was unconstitutional. This is the second time the United States Supreme Court has found. The affordable Care Act Obamacare unconstitutional one of the misconceptions regarding a C A With the initial Supreme Court ruling was that it was upheld to be clear. It absolutely was not. He was struck down. And rewritten by the court because it was found that the penalties under the affordable Care Act for noncompliance as the law was written. That they constituted attacks. And the only way that the affordable care act would be constitutional is if it were written as though it were a tax increase. So what Theseus cream court did is they changed the language in the law after finding it unconstitutional on those grounds, and the affordable care act is demonstrably the largest tax increase in American history. Now. This is the second time this on religious exemptions. We're going to see where this one
Supreme Court upholds exemptions to Obamacare contraceptive mandate
"Decisions handed down from the Supreme Court this hour. First the court endorsing a plan by the Trump administration to give employers exemptions from covering women's birth control that was required. In a federal mandate that required a federal mandate. The court ruled 7 to 2 against the states of Pennsylvania and New Jersey, which challenge the legality of the administration's rule, weakening the so called contraceptive mandate of Obamacare. The court also ruling in favor of religious schools seeking to evade employment lawsuits. Tomorrow's the court's final day of decisions, which means that we can expect the justices to announce their decision on President Trump's financial

"Affordable Care Enhancement Act. The patient protection. Affordable care enhancement that comes to the floor is the Trump Administration continues its efforts in court to strike down the remaining portions of the Affordable Care Act, or OBAMACARE representative David Sicilian, he says. This's exactly the wrong time for the administration to be doing that, in the middle of a global health pandemic.

Mike Pence, Dr. Fauci & Coronavirus Task Force Press Conference
"Coronavirus Task Force members. They just tell their first briefing in two months. tell us more. That's right wolf while president trump was laying low at the White House. The coronavirus task force return to the spotlight, holding a news conference, not at the White House, but over the Department of Health and Human Services Mr. Trump was not there, so we didn't take questions instead. Vice President Mike Pence seemed to tiptoe around the issues of wearing masks and holding rallies Dr Anthony Fauci was much more direct telling Americans they aren't doing enough to control the virus. With coded nine hundred and sweeping across the south and out West. The administration's Corona Virus Task Force finally reemerged with Vice President Mike Pence appear to be looking at the soaring number of cases through rose colored glasses. All fifty states and territories across this country are are opening up safely and responsibly. We slowed the spread. We flat in the curve. We saved lives. But that's not quite true. As a surprising spike in Corona virus cases is spreading from Florida Southern California, forcing some states to pause there reopenings Taskforce Dr Anthony found. She tried to add a dose of reality gently putting his finger on some of the nation's missteps, everything from maybe opening a little bit too early on some to opening at the right time, but not actually following the steps in an orderly fashion to actually trying to follow the steps in an orderly fashion, but the citizen tree did not feel that they wanted to do that. For a number of reasons bounce, you try to make an appeal to individual Americans do more. You have an individual responsibility to yourself. But you have a societal responsibility. It was the first task force news conference in nearly two months with a change of scenery as officials address the pandemic at the Department of Health and Human Services instead of at the white. House and then I see the disinfectant. We're not out in a minute we're. The briefings came to a screeching halt back in April when the president suggested that Americans, inject themselves with disinfectants to kill the virus. As for the wisdom of holding proud campaign events like the president's rally in Tulsa last weekend, pens tried to dance around the question. We still want to give people the freedom to participate in the political process. Campaign is not part of the problem even in a health crisis. The American people don't forfeit our constitutional rights. Pence also declined to give a full throated endorsement for masks despite wearing one public the day before the first principle is that people ought to listen to their state and local authorities, former vice president Joe. Biden said he would try to mandate masks. I would insist that everybody on public. Be Wearing that mask and he wanted. Wanted to reopen and would have to make sure that they walked into a business that had mass. The administration is considering a new approach to halting communities spread with something called pool testing that would have health officials testing batches of samples from people in groups. The batches positive individuals in that group need to be tested. If a pool is negative, that means the whole group is likely safe. If we didn't do, testing would have. have no cases even as the president continues to downplay testing, he is struggling to lay out what he would do if he won reelection. Never really answering the question on Fox, what your top priority items for a second term well one of the things that will be really great, you know the word experiences still good I always say talent is more important than experience I've always said that the Wall Street Journal argued Mr Trump's. Trump's still has no second term message beyond his own grievances may soon need a new nickname for sleepy Joe. Biden, how does president sound while Mr Trump attacked Biden's occasional gifts, he had one of his own appearing to say the former vice president would win the race, but I mean the man can't speak and he's going to be your president because some people don't love me and you know all I'm doing doing my job. Now, even the middle of a pandemic Andrew Recession.

"obamacare" Discussed on WSJ Opinion: Potomac Watch
"Am The little sisters of the poor a group of Catholic nuns who operate nursing homes? We're back to the Supreme Court for a second time. Arguing against the insurance contraception mandate that is part of Obamacare Bill. You've have followed this case in written columns on it for years now. What is the crux of the argument? Here the crux of the argument is that it seems to be a priority for an incredible segment of left to forced these Catholic nuns to distribute contraception remember. This is a rule. This wasn't really a law was included in a law giving hhs discretion and it went to the Supreme Court and they had a partial victory was sent down to lower courts to the Supreme Court. Suspended the fines way. It was an incredible amount of money each day. And there's no way they could have afforded to do it but it really smacks of bad faith of trying to force this down these nuns and not taking The answering the original case remembering the original case justice Scalia died before they rendered a decision so it was not as clear as it will probably be this time where we have a justice gorsuch in there now yet to go through just a little bit more of that history so the affordable care act says that insurance plans generally have to cover women's preventive care which the health and Human Services Department of the Obama Administration said meant all manner of contraception coverage There was an accommodation offered to groups like the little sisters Where they could opt out but the little sisters Are arguing that The opt-out requires their insurance plan. Or someone down the line to offer the same seamless coverage through their plan infrastructure They got to the Supreme Court in two thousand sixteen. But then as you say Justice Scalia had died. I in the court didn't rule on the merits than in two thousand seventeen eighteen. The trump administration expanded some conscience exceptions which Pennsylvania and New Jersey sued to block. So now we're back at the Supreme Court with the substantially the same question. And there's there's lots of arguments here but Kim one of them is based on Riffa. The Religious Freedom Restoration Act which says that if government wants to substantially burden religious exercise it generally has to do so by the least restrictive means. And that's how hobby lobby a similar case. Right and Riffa is very much in keeping with the American respect for Religious Liberty if you go through all kinds of different examples you know we even in times of war the. Us has accommodated pacifists You know there are Amish. Who are exempt from Social Security and the Riffa Act was passed in one thousand nine hundred ninety three with all of this mine And it's essentially authorized. The creation of exemptions to the birth control mandate and the Obama Administration wanted nothing to this. They keep saying that. Well you know you if you can do this or your insurers we've given you as you called it an opt out but as the nuns of pointed out this is not a fixed because it's just. It's a way of offering the little sisters at mechanism to comply with the mandate It's not allowing them to not comply with the mandate and it's forcing them therefore to provide a service that fundamentally is at odds with their religious beliefs so in this case is going to be made based on what we know from Hobby Lobby. One would assume that the majority on the court is going to be very sympathetic. To that argument I listened to the oral arguments. I'll pull out a few notable moments here in paraphrase some things. Because I don't have an a full transcript yet The first being justice GINSBURG So she asked a very long. I guess it wasn't a question. It was a statement and then the chief justice said. Do you want to respond to that to the advocate? But she her argument bill. Is that That these exceptions from the trump administration she says toss to the winds entirely. Congress's instructions that women need and shall have seamless and no cost comprehensive coverage and she was saying that that leaves women to hunt for coverage on their own or try to find another government program and that refer doesn't allow in her view one party to harm another in this way. Yeah I think that's a real stretch Look and second. There is the constitution that protection religious liberty. I think it's just incredible that at this day. We're trying to force none D- fraction of the population. Who Do an incredible job serving the elderly in their homes in the little sisters homes to provide Contraceptives against her will to their employees. It's just it's just crazy you know. The irony is we mentioned refer before river was passed in reaction to justice Scalia's opinion in that payout case where he basically said in a generally applicable law. You know has to apply to everyone and he was not is sympathetic to the religious exemption but I sort of agree with him. I think in wake of hobby lobby and I think also wake. This is a really This is another example of just the bad faith toward religious believers that we see so often from the left not to not to reach a reasonable accommodation as Kim mentioned the accommodations that the Obama Administration for example. If we're just accounting gimmicks right and I don't see why this is so important to them. Yeah you know one other thing that I would add to. That is 'cause I appreciate bill's point about how you know. This is such a small part of the population and things have changed a lot as well in the ten years since Obamacare was passed. Women have the ability to now thanks to planned parenthood on get a prescription online and have contraception delivered to their home. There are different Obamacare exchanges can go and take instead it's easier to get contraception through government plans these days and I always returned to the fact too. That W- was only ten years ago when women were responsible for obtaining their own contraception entirely outside of their insurance plans and and managed to do so quite successfully. I would point out so I mean the argument that this is is somehow a tyranny against women. The other additional joke is that look. The little sisters of the poor have never provided Contra -ception coverage so the argument that someone's going to lose their contraception coverage is simply nonsense and poke lament the advocate. On behalf of the little sisters made that point It was an interesting moment was he was asked by Justice Alito. You know who who would this apply to within your organization that you know of and what he said was that we first of all as you say the this mandate has never been applied to the little sisters because they've been finding it this whole time and he said we've not heard from a single employee who views as the problem You know these people not all of them. They the little sisters higher Open basis so not all of them are Catholic But he said they these people come to work for the little sisters understanding. The mission of the little sisters Again that's that's paraphrase just typing out as they are as they're speaking But it's it's IT'S. It's an interesting challenge to balance some of these these burns at some point so another interesting moment. Bill was just as soda. My are asked assume that Congress says that every insurance has to cover a corona virus vaccine and there is someone who objects to vaccination could. They declined to pay for that policy. And Paul Clementi advocate for little sisters said. No I mean maybe that would be held to be a substantial burden on religion but in the middle of a pandemic may be government could carry that burden. So I mean some of these questions are not quite clear cut although I mean that's a hypothetical that maybe wouldn't come to pass anyway. Yeah absolutely agree again. Look I think the larger issue is on on these kind of things you know the constitution of the larger issues that were supposed to reasonably accommodate people of religious belief and not force them to find. That's behind as Kim said. The refer logic is that you know you might still have the goal that every woman who works for the little sisters should should to have access to contraception should have access to free contraception. But is this the only way to do it to force that to be provided through the sisters? I mean you could set up clinics. There's many different ways I I really think. Well I certainly hope that the Supreme Court on this one is going to finally give a clear resolution to the issue and I would just add to. I read about that sort of my question and found it somewhat absurd. Only in this regard that the situations aren't remotely comparable in that when you're talking about a pandemic and infectious disease. That's very very different than getting pregnant. You don't catch getting pregnant so those are just in my mind. I thought it was a question that that didn't really make the point that she was trying to make.

"obamacare" Discussed on Today, Explained
"Okay. Sarah. We talked about the text judge and the democratic attorneys general who are posing his decision. What are Democrats here in Washington doing for ObamaCare now that they have control of the house on the second day in control of the house on January fourth? They announced that they are going to file paperwork. Also with the fifth circuit to defend the Affordable Care Act in court. It almost feels a little captain plan at eight A may like you have like members of congress, the attorneys generals kind of teaming up to give this legal defense to the Affordable Care Act and do Democrats feel that they owe that to Obama to their voters or do they feel like they have a mandate right now to go in to congress and protect ObamaCare. I mean, ObamaCare is just as much Nancy Pelosi's baby as it is Obama. She shepherded that Bill through the house, and we were many many moments when it was not clear going to pass and she gave this press conference. I remember where. You know, I it was one of those moments where it looked like ObamaCare was not going to become law. And she was saying, you know, we go through the gate. The gates close will go over the fence fences too, high will pull out in that doesn't work. We'll parachute end, but we're going to get healthcare reform passed for the American people for their own personal health and economic security. She was so integral in the law's passage and corralling our caucus. So I'm sure part of it for hers personal that you know, she wants to see this law. That is a big part of her speakership legacy survive. And I think they also feel like they have a mandate. They ran on healthcare. They won on health care that they see the Affordable Care Act as a political asset after years of seeing it as a political obstacle. But what can they really do with the Republican majority in the Senate with the Republican president who definitely has an ax to grind with ObamaCare. If this is just circulating through the course right now, one of the things they could do is, you know, actually. Get rid of the individual mandate. They would just require some bipartisan work around the Affordable Care Act that there is not much of a history of the individual mandate was such a big part of the ACA's passage. What is ObamaCare look like without it? And does it eventually just follow part because the whole argument was that you need the individual mandate to make these markets work. Right. Yes. So the individual mandate everyone spent so much time in twenty ten talking about three legged stools. This is the Elvis thing healthcare nerds talked about and the three legged stool of ObamaCare was that an order to have one leg of the stool, everybody gets health insurance. And a second leg of the stool that people are charged the same prices. No matter what you needed a third leg of your stool, you needed.

Republican governors and attorneys general from twenty states challenging the individual mandate. The judge a George W Bush appointee ruling the requirement of coverage unconstitutional. President Trump calling it a great ruling for the country. But what happens now for the millions who rely on ObamaCare for health insurance at recovering pre existing conditions. Now, I want to put this in context at the boss still standing in the Texas. Judge cannot totally overturn it major federal law. So if anyone is panicked about Rama care coverage at is still there, but he issued this very very sweeping ruling that said as a result of some actions. Congress took in two thousand seventeen the law now cannot stand. So we have this huge ruling against the Affordable Care Act. The second thing to know is that seventeen attorneys general all Democrats are now appealing this decision up to the fifth circuit. Okay. In the third thing to know is congress is now getting involved as it's a new congress new congress controlled by Democrats Democrats in the congress have also decided they're throwing their hats in the ring.

"More government insurance, people get insurance. Now along the way, Republican politicians have been fighting this law. With a strategy that has three pillars. And this is important for the midterms. Repeal sabotage or discriminate repeal means eliminate ObamaCare. If you can sabotage means undercut it. And if you can't do that, then they have been trying to get corporations to discriminate against six sick people. A repeal, of course, as the original promise from House Republicans, they voted on that dozens of times Trump ran on it. They held that vote in July, which failed Republicans. Then turn to the sabotage portion, various bills to gut ObamaCare. So it wouldn't work. One Bill would gut the mandate to get health insurance and Republicans voted for that. It was so close that you had to late Senator John McCain, giving it the crucial thumbs-down. He argued that kneecapping part of ObamaCare with no replacement was responsible, and that was sabotage which failed as well at the state level, though not the federal level. Republicans did try other things ObamaCare, not being offered to citizens and fourteen red states that were basically refusing to do Medicaid expansion. Those were efforts at the hindering where the sabotage and that makes this rising number of Americans covered even more striking. Then before we get to the midterms, I wanna show you a final way. Some Republicans have been opposing ObamaCare, trying to gut one of its most popular protections for people who are either sick or might get sick. You may have heard about this preexisting conditions boils down to whether corporations can discriminate against patients this week. The Trump administration has a new effort to make that kind of discrimination easier, and they won't defend that part of ObamaCare in court, but it's not just Trump take Ted Cruz who's campaigning for his life right now. He wanted to gut those positions, those protections a position..

"It decided to take the mandate down to zero without touching anything else in the Bill. And we would like you to look at that and then decide the congress actually believes and if you read the arguments for this brief for the conservative side here, this is what they say. The congress actually believes that if you take out the individual mandate entirely, the whole Bill has to fall. That would be legislating from the bench in such an insane extravagant grandiose way that it's hard to even know what to say about it. I just want to make one distinction when the original version of this case came about what the basic argument was about was Obamacare's constitutionality. The idea was that if the individual mandate is not constitutional, the individual mandate is in central part of ObamaCare, if it had not been there, congress would have never. Passed it. And so the whole thing to fall, I thought that was a dumb argument to what they're basically arguments restraint for the the laws not constitutional and that they are. You know that there was an intent in congress that if part of it was unconstitutional, they may as well just under the whole thing that congress start over that made again, not a ton of sense, but a lot more sense than congress has made a specific scalpel like incision in the Bill, what that really shows now is that the thing is now that's going to be unconstitutional and despite it having no real difference in effect, we're gonna by taking out the individual mandate as opposed to bringing it to zero. We're going to take down the whole Bill because that's what congress would have really wanted us to do or needed us to do. It's crazy. And it just to me, like in addition to being something we have to take seriously. One thing it shows is that we don't really have to take seriously this idea that conserves don't want the supreme court to legislate from the bench. This is what legislating from the bench looks like, but it's also. I mean for one thing, right? Like it's true that this is legislating from the bench, but also every ruling that every conservative judges made throughout all of American history as legislate from the bench. At a certain point, I think the game of like, aha, it turns out they're not really adhering. These friends was like is a little right?.
